Online dating provides many opportunities, especially if you are too busy to meet new people in your everyday life. The anonymity will make you feel quite comfortable, but it is connected to certain risks, as well. How can you tell whether the guy you are talking to online has a girlfriend? Pay attention to his profile and his behavior.

  1. 1
    Check His Profile Photo and His Name.
    Men in relationships will be reluctant to upload an actual profile picture. This should be the first warning sign. A lack of photo and the selection of an avatar, a picture of a celebrity or any abstract photograph will reveal confidence issues or the possibility of a man in a relationship. It is also possible for guys that have girlfriends to go under a fake name. Check the name to find out whether such a person really exists. Ask him for a picture. If he refuses to give you one, you should begin questioning his intentions.

  2. 2
    Ask Him Personal Questions.
    A guy who has a girlfriend will be unwilling to answer personal questions. He may be too secretive or he could give you ambiguous answers. Ask him a series of very personal questions about his love history, where he lives, who he lives with and what he does for a living. A failure to answer any of these questions, even after you get to know each other better, should raise a red flag.

    Pay Attention to How and When He is Responding.
    Single men will be capable of carrying out online communication anywhere, anytime. If he is alone at home, he will respond immediately and chat with you. A man that is in a relationship will need to be much more cautious about his online communication. Are his responses irregular? Does it take him hours to write back? Chances are that he is in a relationship.

    Check His Social Media Profiles.
    Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networking websites are a great way to learn something more about the guys you are talking to online. Check their profiles. If you fail at finding a profile for such a person, you can be almost entirely certain that he has given you a fake name. Facebook is one of the best places to check for personal information. Even if he is not in a relationship, you can learn more about his lifestyle and the way in which he interacts with other people.

  5. 5
    Find Out if He is Reluctant to Call You.
    A man who has a girlfriend will probably refuse to give you his phone number. Additionally, calling each other will be challenging because he will have to do it while his girlfriend is away. After you talk to each other online for some time, you should go ahead and ask for a phone number. Men in relationships will most often be very reluctant about providing such a communication option. Even if a man who has a girlfriend gives you a phone number, you will find it difficult to reach him and going to voicemail will be the common scenario.

Signs guy you have been talking online has a girlfriend?

Here are some signs if a guy that you have been talking online has a girlfriend:

  • If you see on his timeline or on his status that he is in a relationship (in a relationship to Girlfriend's name).
  • When he posts something and same girl still liking it and liking the guy's post, it means that could be his girlfriend.
  • When the guy post a picture and a girl comment something sweet and the guy also replied, it means that could be his girlfriend.

If you want to know if he has a girlfriend, talk to him online and if you have a good topic, and this is a chance to ask in a different way like "you must give it to your girlfriend" and if he replied and in his reply it seems that he has a girlfriend, so that way you know if that guy has a girlfriend.
